Mirrors In Prophetic Timelines
It became apparent in studying the specific timelines given in scripture that there are patterns all through them. This page is an overview of some of those patterns. I don’t currently know what they mean, but the fact that they’re there shows design and I can’t ignore that. I’m sure these are hardly all of them either, so for whatever reason these patterns exist, here they are...

Pattern of time mirrored in the 14,000 days
14,000 days from triumphal entry to destruction of Jerusalem
This brings many things into focus. The triumphal entry marked the blinding of the Jews. It also marked the moment Christ prophesied of the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. And most amazing of all, He said it would happen in a generation! “...shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee...” Christ lays out a timeframe in which both the current parents and their children within them would be killed. If it were around 60 years later or so, the parents would be dead and it would only be the children left. Therefore the prophecy wouldn’t be accurate. It could be anytime after the children are born, but we see from history that it was much more precise a prophecy than that, it was 14,000 days from the triumphal entry when Christ made this prophecy [April 6, 32 AD] to when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple Mount [August 5, 70 AD]. We have the wholly Biblical first account of a generation when Israel wandered the wilderness for 14,000 days exactly.
I believe His prophecy was fulfilled more specifically than we understand from what is written. Also, that “encompassing” Christ prophesied is what Luke 21:20-22 is speaking about. More on that in the Olivet Discourse study.
14,000 days from giving up the Temple Mount to the Jewish “head of the year”
I believe that God gave Israel back the Temple Mount in the Six-Day-War. However, on the very day that Israel took back Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, they gave up control of the Mount to Islamic control and ever since have been haunted by that decision. I believe that was God’s timing to start the 70th week, but because of that generation’s rejection of God’s provision in giving them the Temple Mount, an extension period of one generation, 14,000 days, was added so that generation would not be in power for the 70th week. This is the same principle as the first mention in scripture which was also for Israel from Mt. Sinai to the Promised Land because they didn’t accept God’s provision, but turned to idols and their own desires. It’s easier to see the mirror effect laid out in this chart:
Notice how the same generational periods are mirrored around the 692,808 days:
Pattern of time mirrored in the last half of the 70th week of Daniel
We also have this interesting mirror pattern evident upon closer inspection of the final 1290 days of the 70th week of Daniel. There are particular events that, because of the exact day prophecies in scripture, we can see a pattern mirrored there.
